Mark has a private practice in New Farm QLD with a clinical focus on specialty contact lenses for the complex cornea. He is one of the providers for RGP and scleral contact lenses for those patients in Queensland on the public corneal graft list. He has a very close working relationship with Brisbane’s leading ophthalmologists and co-manages many eye conditions.
He is a QUT graduate and has completed the graduate certificate in ocular therapeutics. Additionally he has an undergraduate degree in applied science and postgraduate bachelor of science honours from the University of Queensland. He is a fellow of the British contact lens association. Mark has been involved with QUT School of Optometry specialty contact lens clinics since 2004 and received the QUT vice chancellor’s award for excellence for teaching in 2010 and 2013.
In addition he presents lectures on specialty contact lens applications for the complex cornea, keratoconus, post grafts, ocular surface disease and other corneal complications. He presents regularly for contact lens industry and in his own right at national and international conferences, is involved in clinical trials with pre-release lenses and products, consults to industry as a KOL, and is a referee for Clinical and Experimental Optometry.
He is sent complex cases from all over Queensland and New South Wales and takes great joy out of giving back the sight that corneal disease has taken away.
General optometry still plays a large role in everyday practice and Mark takes meticulous care to ensure every aspect of the eye is taken care of from the spectacle prescription to the optimal lens selection. It is this personal touch and attention to every individual patient’s needs that sets us apart.
When Mark is not working he is either spending time with his family, road cycling or surfing.
